Diary of John Quincy Adams, volume 1



21st. JQA 21st. Adams, John Quincy

The weather cleared up in the Night; somewhat cold, and very windy. Mr. Evans set off in the afternoon for Portsmouth.

Finished the 4th. and began the 5th. Book of the Iliad. The 200 408last lines in the 4th. are much more difficult than any thing I have met with in Greek as yet.
